Riverhawk B-60 Pro Caster; 2005 hull (go to http://www.riverhawkboats.com); 15'; 2007 15 hp Johnson tiller 2 stroke with stainless prop; galvanized trailer; Minn Kota Riptide 40lb thrust trolling motor, 36' shaft on custom made aluminum bow mount; deep cycle battery storage under bow deck.  Poling platform; custom grab bar bolted to storage/live well; 2 gas tanks (6 and 3 gallon capacities).  This boat is wide and has great stability; you can stand on the gunwhale. It will float where my kayak won't. Top speed with calm conditions 22mph at 7 miles per gallon full throttle. I have used this boat a lot up and down the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon as well as 10,000 Islands and Wilderness Waterway .. several trips from Chokoloskee to Whitewater Bay. It is a great back country mini-skiff. Motor is still in warranty and has a new spare aluminum prop. Trailer has slicks on the bunks; launches and loads easily. Pix emailed upon request. $3500.

Re: Riverhawk B-60 Procaster > pictures

I'll try to post a couple pix of the Riverhawk "in action.."



one pic the boat is loaded with extra fuel and camping gear for a 50 mile loop trip fm Chokoloskee to Camp Lonesome



view of the platform and grab bar/livewell(storage since I don't use bait)



she'll carry 3 (my folks in this case) and still do about 17-18mph.

Re: Riverhawk B-60 Procaster

Chokoloskee to Camp Lonesome: 50 miles +/- depending on your route. We generally take the Wilderness Waterway to avoid rougher stuff in the Gulf Islands. Took 6 gallons to get there. I had 15 extra on board that trip for a total of 24 total. Used all but 5 but, then again, we ran for nearly 200 miles up and down rivers, creeks and way inland. Out 5 nights in all. 3 of those days we never saw another living soul.
